I’ve updated the prices on all paperbacks. Here is why: I use Createspace, the Amazon distribution for paperbacks. They set the prices. Yes, you read that right. They set a minimum price for each book depending on length and distribution channels.

The top image is when I chose Expanded Distribution (sites other than Amazon). I make $4.57 per sale out of $14.99. Amazon keeps the rest.

Here you can see I make  $1.57 when I eliminate everything but Createspace and Amazon.com. To try and keep the price down, I’m adjusting all of my paperbacks to the cheaper option. I hope you understand why. The changes should hit Amazon.com this weekend.
